Window Treatment Ideas

The windows can be just as beautiful as the rest of the room. You just need to know how to decorate them. There are many window treatment ideas to choose from, including curtains, blinds and shutters. And each of them has its advantages and disadvantages in terms of privacy, blocking light and adding aesthetic value to the room. Some options are more for the look, while others will keep the room dark and private.

Sheer Panels
Breathable curtains are made of translucent lightweight fabric. From a design point, they act by softening the window and scattering the light but they don’t offer privacy. This window treatment is best for residential areas where you are not concerned about privacy.

Roller curtains
Roller blinds are a very simple window treatment that does not offer much aesthetic value. These curtains are produced in a variety of materials, including fabric and vinyl. When they are open, the material is flat and blocks the light. And when they close, the material is in a roll. With them, you can dim or completely darken the room by your choice so they can fit in most rooms.

Venetian blinds have horizontal slats that can be made of different materials, including metal, wood and vinyl. To raise and lower the blinds, the rope is pulled, and the slats can be tilted. These blinds can be the size of a window and allow for different levels of privacy. However, horizontal slats collect dust. They are good for most rooms, although they will not completely block the light in the bedrooms.
